Looking back on the in-class storyboarding for our e-portfolios, I realize it was a very helpful experience.
When I walked into class I only had a vague idea of how I wanted my e-portfolio to look. I knew which tabs I wanted in my navigation bar and that I did not want a theme, but that was about it. I sat at the table with a blank piece of paper in front of me, looking at what everyone else was doing so I could figure out where to begin.
Slowly, it all came together. I sketched out an idea of how I wanted my homepage to look, and decided to figure out the logistics of creating my actual site later.
It was during this “later,” as I was staring at the dozens of Wix.com templates, that I was grateful for my makeshift storyboard. Storyboarding forced me to choose a direction (which I needed) and made putting together my online draft much easier.
